Mitsubishi’s next Challenger 4WD has been caught without camouflage while participating in a filming session overseas.

Enthusiast site Headlight Magazine has posted the images; just days after Mitsubishi released a teaser image of the new Challenger (known as the ‘Pajero Sport’ in some markets) ahead of its official unveiling.

That unveiling was scheduled to take place in Thailand next month, but the cat may be out of the bag now thanks to these revealing images which show the Challenger’s exterior from all angles.

Front styling will come as little surprise to those who viewed the teaser image, with its ‘chiselled’ look combined with lots of chrome and slim headlights - or as Mitsubishi calls it, a “Dynamic Shield frontal design”.

The look marks something of a reinvention from the current Challenger’s look, which is closer to the Triton pickup upon which it’s based.

Instead, Mitsubishi appears to have channelled the updated Outlander’s styling for its new Challenger while stepping up the sharpened, chrome look.

Rear styling may raise some eyebrows among Mitsubishi fans however, with a long, thin taillight design marking a new look for the Japanese carmaker.

The taillights appear to have come from Mitsubishi’s GR-HEV concept from the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, which was designed as a preview to the all-new Triton (that arrived in Australia in April).

Rear access may therefore be one of the new Challenger’s big selling points, with the wafer-thin lights allowing for an extra-large tailgate.

Upon its arrival in Australia, the 2016 Mitsubishi Challenger will compete with the likes of Holden’s Colorado 7 and the Isuzu MU-X, along with the incoming Toyota Fortuner and Ford Everest.
